Can Liberal Pluralism be Exported?

Alexander Ossipov

Oxford University Press

This paper presents some criticisms against Kymlicka’s ideas on ‘ethnocultural justice’. It argues that many of Kymlicka’s suggestions do not apply to the realities of the former Soviet Union, particularly Russia. It identifies fundamental problems to Kymlicka’s approach: that his basic assumptions are arbitrary and disputable, the internal logic seems contradictory, potential gains are overestimated, and some potentially undesirable effects are not considered.

Keywords:   ethnocultural justice, ethnic groups, group rights, minorities, statehood, autonomy
